Global Service Tech Communication at Medtronic writes for employees in the field—people who are maintaining and replacing parts in complex surgical navigation and imaging equipment. Problem: A 3000-page PDF is hard to read on a phone, difficult to search, and easy to get lost in. Problem: Some of the field personnel skip the manual altogether and call tech support instead. We had to rethink how we were delivering content. Was there a way to let our users find the content they needed, just when they needed it? Can we save time when time is critical? We turned to MadCap Flare to develop an HTML output and gained improved searchability, ease of navigation, and a simplified presentation of content to those in the field—regardless of the device they use. In this webinar, Trish Edwards will analyze the obstacles unique to providing service documentation where internet access is not guaranteed, and when system downtime impacts real patients in life-and-death ways.

Large-scale corporate applications often have several types of users. These users have different roles when interacting with the application, and the help information that they need or should be allowed to access varies depending on their role. For example, administrators might need to see all application help, but order placers only need to see a subset of help. How do you ensure that users only see the help information that’s appropriate for their role?

This webinar discusses best practices for setting up your MadCap Flare project to create role-based help, and what to talk about with your software development team so that they can implement role-based help in your application. We’ll share examples of how Rochester Software Associates implemented role-based help for two of their software products: a webapp installed on a proprietary web server, and a Windows application.
